Borussia Dortmund ace Marco Reus has reportedly agreed a deal to join Real Madrid next summer, dealing a blow to both Arsenal and Manchester United.
Reus is in a unique position going into next summer.
He has a release clause in his contract which activates at the end of the season, allowing him to depart Dortmund for a set fee of £19.7 million, well below his true value.
As a result, he has been chased by a series of European giants in recent months.
Both Arsenal and Man Utd have, at times, expressed an interest in bringing him to the Premier League.
It seems, however, that they have been pipped by Champions League winners Real Madrid in the battle for the talented forward.
Reports in Spain are now suggesting that the player has agreed to a deal with the La Liga leaders, according to the Daily Star.
This will come as a further blow to Dortmund, who sit in the relegation zone in the Bundesliga.
